Overview

In State of the World 2002, the Worldwatch Institute's award-winning research team describes how to meet the complex challenges of restoring a sustainable balance between the growing human population, rising levels of consumption, and the threats to the natural systems that support all life on the Earth.
The book provides concerned citizens and national leaders with comprehensive analysis of the global environmental problems we face, together with detailed descriptions of practical, innovative solutions, like charting the most environmentally sound path to a hydrogen-fueled economy, or accelerating the rapidly growing conversion of farmers worldwide to organic farming and sustainable agriculture. Written in clear and concise language, with easy-to-read charts and tables, State of the World 2002 presents a view of our changing world that we, and our leaders, cannot afford to ignore.
